The concept for this show came about when sculptor Grace Davies wanted to see an ivory-billed woodpecker. Given that one hasn’t been seen since the 1930s, making a life-size one from clay was the next best thing. During the sculpting process she felt a growing connection with this species, and wanted to feel the same personal involvement with other extinct and threatened species. This is a work in progress, and Grace hopes that her growing menagerie will entertain, inform, and possibly inspire others to get involved.

This month, La Mano’s gallery features recent work of ceramic artist Peggy Clarke. The collection includes gas fired functional pieces, as well as decorative sculptures and vessels that have been fired in a pit, a raku kiln or a sagger firing.
Peggy discovered her love of pottery at the same time she discovered La Mano, about 15 years ago. Deciding on a whim to take a basic wheel class, she quickly became immersed in everything related to clay. Along the way, Peggy has studied with many renowned ceramic experts, soaking up innovative techniques and bringing many of them back to the studio and to her own work.
